Hoop Tracker is a new gadget that helps ballers improve their shooting. Hoop Tracker comes in two parts: a wristwatch that tracks and displays data and a hoop-mounted sensor that records makes and misses. Using the gadget is simple; simply mount the sensor on the hoop, turn on the watch and ball away! The sensor transmits data on makes and misses to the watch, although air balls must be manually entered via a button press.

You can check your shots in real-time and see where on the court you have scored from and how many points you've racked up. The watch also stores data from up to nine previous sessions, letting you see just how much you've improved. Data from the watch can be uploaded to the Hoop Tracker site where you can further track your progress and compare your improvement against friends. Hoop Tracker is expected to hit stores in 2014 and will sell for $199. Stats for Shot-Watching Watches Trending: Older & Mild
